This card seems amazing T2 100 along w/ being able to get a free energy after the attack. Sure your opponent draws a prize, but more than likely you will too. The T2 donking potential is also amazing. I think it is best when combined w/ Electivire (SW). Electivire is another beastly Stage 1 w/ a Lv. X form. Electivire can use it's power to grab an energy, then get an energy from Trode, and then you have your energy attachment for next turn (possibly a DRE) to make it's attack a near OHKO, while your charging up another Trode/Vire on your bench. Vire Lv. X has a great power and a down right annoying attack and can really help you get that late game, energy efficient attacker right when you need it, if you ever go past the first few turns. I haven't tested this deck but it seems pretty amazing. I am thankin 3-3-3-1 (Vire/Lv. X) line (if you like draw) OR 4-3-1 (SW Buzz) for the speed and 4-4 Trode line I love both of these cards so much. Problem is, starting w/ Buzz is a pain, BUT Thundershock is nice on the SW one. AND 4 Switch (I believe) are necessary. Vire/Buzz have amazingly painful retreat costs and often times, if you don't have that Switch you won't be able to attack with Trode/Vire the next turn, which can become a crutial turning point.
